Josh Osborne Renews Deal With ASCAP

Josh Osborne has renewed his membership agreement with ASCAP.

“Josh is one of country music’s most talented and successful hitmakers, and he has earned a reputation as one of the most in-demand collaborators on Music Row,” said ASCAP Chief Executive Officer Elizabeth Matthews. “He is truly a songwriter’s songwriter, and we are excited to be by his side as he continues to shape the genre with his insightful yet universal writing style.”

Osborne earned his first No. 1 song in 2012 with “Come Over,” recorded by Kenny Chesney, and since then has been nominated for numerous awards by the Academy of Country Music, Billboard Music Awards, Country Music Association, NARAS and more. In 2014, Kacey Musgraves’ single “Merry Go Round,” co-written by Osborne, earned a Grammy for Best Country Song. The RIAA certified double platinum No. 1 hit “Take Your Time,” recorded by Sam Hunt, earned Osborne a Song of the Year nomination at the 2015 CMA Awards, and that year he also won his first ASCAP Country Song of the Year Award for Sam Hunt’s “Leave The Night On.” He also co-penned Hunt’s record-breaking, multi-platinum 2018 ASCAP Song of the Year smash, “Body Like a Back Road.”

“I am so thankful for the success that I have had as an ASCAP writer, and I am so excited to get to continue to be a part of the ASCAP family,” said Osborne.
